Centers

Although I am self-centered, please forgive
self-centeredness in me since even Earth
is like this too – this world on which we live,
this planet where we all have had our birth,
revolves around itself – around its axis –
and thus creates for us our nights and days,
and, like the moon, from far it wanes and waxes
so all parts of itself can bask in rays.
But like Earth also spins around the sun,
I have another, higher center, too,
a heavenly, unseen, and loving one,
I pray will guide the things I say and do.
Our planet is self-centered as am I
but has another center in the sky.
